newer 2350's don't have this problem... Was a major design change in location, location, location, as the real estate agents would say..

Know this is down the calendar a bit, but Barb and myself will have our 2350 in Cheyenne the last two weeks of August.

Ron,...  will be coming and going via Rapid City as well.   Like that route better than I-80.

Bruce...  yes I noticed that also.  But whatever the material up there I don't think it would be a bad idea to protect it  UV  wise.  My roof is 70% maybe covered with solar panels.   So I wonder if I should be applying some protectant on them also.  Another good question is 303 the only stuff out there with UV  properties?

Thanks as we opted also  to forego  the intertainement system and TV as we had our own.  But  we could use a bit more sound.

I don't think for me, is realistic to have holding tank AND water tank ALL full at the same time.

Bruce, I was in Rockford, I'll where I don't think anyone knows me any longer. LOL

But like your thread as it sure is a struggle which ever way one tries it.  I'm also height challenged and a ladder is my good friend. But this job requires more ideas.

This may sound stupid or crazy, but last week I cleaned that area and waxed by laying on my belly from the roof to fo the top half and step ladder for the bottom half. Smile

Did anyone ever try thos 12 pumps to actually pump to 80lbs?  I tried doing that with what was a high end 12 pump, and it blew up before I got to 70lbs. (Was rated at 100+lbs)

Yes.. Bruce and Sharon... we too test drove the LaSharo before we bought the Rialta. We were quite happy with the Rialta, but the tranny couldn't take it, and finally went out on us.

We too forgot to have PC do the solar for us. Would have been much easier for them to do it during construction. We told them to not do the generator, but do 2 extra batteries.  That was a good choice as we had bad memories of the Rialta genset and after almost 3 months of dry camping, we never ran our batteries down below 95%. And.. we (I think) are power mongers... meaning I am a Ham Radio guys .. sending and receiving radio emails (when out of cell service area) daily and we usually like to watch two DVD movies a day. Of course... we were in the SouthWest where there is a Sun.. Not here in the midwest where maybe one day a week or the trees prevent the solar panels to work properly.  javascript:void(0);

Well the Southwest is known for it wild West weather fluctuations. So.. for that we just bring along "layers".  Used to bring my Wisconsin long johns and overcoats, but took up too much space. So now it is layers, and that seems to work out fine. javascript:void(0); Smile

Space... you can search some of my other posting as see what I have done to create more "space". I take pleasure in finding more "space" in the 2350.  We have a two person inflatable kayak, with all the trimmings and life jackets tucked away nicely UNDER the coach. My next idea is to store the leveling blocks behind the exhaust pipe.  When I get home I will work on that.

So yes.. this 2350 is a work in progress probably to the last day I own it...

Mine has all letters after the word "DOT"  ....   This is strange.... back tires have letters after the
DOT, and the front have week+year as U have indicated..

Congratulations on your new 2350.  We  just completed a 6000 mile winter getaway to Arizona / New Mexico & Texas. We don't have any pets, but Barb and I do enjoy the layout and space of the 2350. We came from a Winn. Rialta which was a bit smaller.  We do mostly dry camping in the wilderness, using 300 watts of solar and 4 batteries. (no generator)

We just got home to Wisconsin, and Barbs dad, in Rockford, Il,  took il and then passed away Sunday. We have been down here in Rockford camping now for almost two weeks.

So are we getting some use out of our 2350??..  Well, so far lived  in our 2350 85 days this year, and only 69 days on the place we pay taxes on.
Mileage: as high as 11.7 and as low as 9.2... Pretty much average 10. (no tow)

Enjoy your new home.

135  Main Forum / General Discussion / Ford Handling Issues on: May 10, 2013, 10:46:55 pm
My Ford F350 had some handling issues.  Basically, it had a mind of its own, meaning on a straight smooth road it liked to wonder where constant corrections was needed. This was not fixed by the standard alignment, or changing tire presures etc.

The internet is a swell tool.  I just had to Google this problem and I came up with this fine site:

To understand all this:

Apparently this wondering issue is addressed by checking the wheel caster alignment.

So I did what was suggested and had the alignment shop change my caster from 0 (zero) to 5 degrees.

In one word; "Amazing".  I would suggest to anyone who is not satisfied with their Fords handling ability to do the same.  This sure beats throwing money at suspension improvments and then finding the problem still exist.

I then went one step further.. My stearing seemed to be tight. (Ford already changed out the stearing gear box).  With the suggestion from my brother, who works at Ford, I disconnected the stearing stablizer.  Now the stearing preasure is more normal. Alignment shop say to just remove
it, and I did.

Just thought I would pass this info on to any who may have the same problems.
